Slot car finally completed ... somehow
Tonight I was fighting with prepared board from Freescale for slot car competition (Freescale Race Challenge). This year is the car smaller, but board remains the same, so I had to use some force and hot glue gun to put all in the place :) After some hardware issues I was able to flash the sample application over USB mass storage bootloader.
Now I have to learn all about Coldfire MCF51JM128RM because I'm not familiar with them. Also I have to play with accelerometer, it's sensitivity and filter algorithms.
I'm planning some hardware modifications, optical encoders...
